Ten in Twenty-Eleven - ONE

Blizzard: Front Row Seat

Blizzard: Front Row Seat is the first in the series Ten in Twenty-Eleven. You can review the previous collection, Ten in Twenty-Ten at Behance Network.
     Here in the midwestern United States, we were warned by weather reports of a pending blizzard of epic proportions with record snowfalls, ice storms and power outages. I prepared myself by setting this chair outside my back door, so I could photograph the historic precipitation as it came down by the hour.
     Fortunately for our neighborhood, but unfortunately for my great plan, the storm missed us and we only ended up with 1.5" of sleet and ice, covered by 2" of white powder. Gusts of wind took care of the accumulation on the chair but left this scene with smooth foreground and background surfaces. The soft shadows of the early morning light added to the solitude and beauty of this image.
